Advanced Safety with ASCS

The ASCS safety system displays the telehandler’s parameters in real-time, including the stabilizer position, boom extension angle, turret position, carriage rotation, load position and weight. The unit is built with a steel safety belt around the cabin, 360-degree visibility and Dynamic Load Control to ensure maximum security.
